JOSM 18303 29 days ago

Weird…

Continuous Download I have active, as Reverter, Measurement, FastDraw and PictLayer - JAXB not. No issues, no error messages.

JOSM 18303 29 days ago

I have JOSM 18303 (on Win10) - just checked. I run it for some time now. Apart from not getting a good slippy map for downloads (despite following all advice on this site) I have no issues with any plug-in and no bug warnings at all. The only message I get is that I should upgrade to another (OpenWebStart instead of Oracle’s outdated Java WebStart ? whatever - it still works) start-up method.

Which plug-ins give issues?

iD performance 3 months ago

Just to balance the discussion:

As a user who has used P2, ID and JOSM, I honestly have few issues with the ‘new’ (OSM -based) ID we have now on OGF. It may be that I also map on OSM, it may be that I map quite slowly. My only issue is that it is very small -scale work and for larger items (landuse etc.) I have to switch to JOSM per sé.

The discussion on whether JOSM is better as in encouraging more reflective and planned - thus better - mapping is still a strange one to me.

We're back! Doing some Beta testing now 3 months ago

Cool !

First, I could only logon to comment, (not directky logon to edit mode) but I could edit using the logon from commenting. Now I can logon to edit straight away, and even without changing my password. I honestly had not expected that. That’s good work.

We're back! Doing some Beta testing now 3 months ago

No problem. Happy you keep making improvements.

I was wondering what was happening with the user-ID / password combinations this time, as I could neither log on for editing nor even change my password earlier today. Any clarity on that ?

I admire your guts in this endeavour.

oh man,

Issues again ;-(

@Luciano: do you know that Potlatch is now on version P3?

I have no clue about the technicalities. I stopped using it.

kind regards,

Good news there:

I have JOSM working with just changing my password. I use basic authentication, not Oauth, by the way. Even the last edits (I bookmark them for easier location) were okay.

O bliss ;-)

Rails Port Open. Happy Mapping! 3 months ago

Huh ? That posted immediately ? Er, I did not expect this ;-)

Anyway, ‘my’ issue was that I could log in using ‘login’ (top right) and acces my mail, but not edit using ‘edit’ (top left). But when I was logged in, I could not edit - that required a second login which failed 90% of times…

Again, you don’t now half how much I applaud your efforts to keep the OGF community up-to-date,

@Luciano

Are you crazy ? Apologizing ? I have worked 25+ years in IT and I have had all the mod cons connected: telephones at 02:00, 24-hour working days, really bad coffee. I value your efforts to keep OGF up to date and really appreciate it.

Rails Port Open. Happy Mapping! 3 months ago

I can easily log in to see my mail - or comment here - but logging in to edit does not work (well once in about 20 times ;-( And when I’m logged in to see my mail I seem to need a second log-in to map, which fails again….

PLEASE HELP. UNABLE TO MAKE SAVES 8 months ago

Just to be sure: if you work with ID, do you add a comment ? I just tested editing via ID without adding a comment and the ‘upload’ button remained ‘greyed out’ until I added a comment.

Topomap and Histor's renderer broken ? 8 months ago

You point exactly at the right place - and there is indeed where it hurts. I get there all options I set in the F12 ‘preferences’, but only the OSM one is really working - and that puts me in the middle of the Indian Ocean, not in the Asperic one…

No clue what goes wrong here, most likely a typo somewhere, but with both the ‘bookmarks’ option and the URL insertion available and working to my pleasure I can work, so it’s no more than a minor nuisance.

thanks anyway

Topomap and Histor's renderer broken ? 8 months ago

Taka,

Thanks for your fast and kind answer, but I may have put my question not specific enough: I have no problems getting the OGF map as background for editing, but when I want to download a region to map, the download dialogue (the box in the upper right of the ‘slippy map’ option) does show me the options to use OGF, but I see nothing (well, red crosses, actually).

I have been saved because I discovered that JOSM does keep the area of the last 15 edits as a bookmark… Now THATs good news. And even copying the URL of the area one wants to work in does work. Hurray for the JOSM developers/sters.

thanks anyway,

Marcello.

Topomap and Histor's renderer broken ? 8 months ago

As much as I like the faster rendering and the availability of the Wiki, it leaves me with one issue: on JOSM I used the Topomap layer as the map from where I did my selection on what / where to download. Now I only see a blank screen. Anyone know how I can set this to OGF/Mapnik standard ?

thanks in andvance

Confirm. I opened the Wiki today by accident, and it just works smoother than ever.

Potlatch & Flash 12 months ago

This is probably a better link to P3 developments:

https://forum.openstreetmap.org/viewtopic.php?id=60263&p=2

It seems the developer is close to a ‘normal’ Windows version (no AIR needed per sé it seems) but not completely there yet. And I do not know whether it is possible to map on both OSM and OGF anyway.

I personally would welcome a smooth transition to P3 on OGF as I strongly disagree that JOSM is the tool of choice on OGF. There is still a lot of editing with both P2 and ID.

Ohesia: collaborative country Kalmish (german) / Ohesian (conlang) about 1 year ago

Interesting.

Mind if I take on the northernmost of the 4 islands near Kgocpa to have a try ? Just to see how ‘Kalm clashes with the tropics’ would work out. Mapping would be kalmish mainly.

V2.0 & V2.01 of Bromley over 1 year ago

I ‘m not half appreciating mapping remarks like ‘Kind of good maping’ (man, can’t you even spell ?) the way it has been done. Please refrain from that.

Worse:

You literally copied / pasted a part of OSM (Bromley South near the ambulance station, somewhat rotated), not even bothering to change street names; which is explicitly not allowed. Calling it ‘Maidstone’ does not help or hide it. And copying OSM Tooting into ‘your’ Ringbury……

Be original or be elsewhere.

Unresponsive part of screen in edit mode. over 1 year ago

Ah,

Mine (Desktop only, as JOSM is not an my laptop) are different indeed, at 150 / 300. Whether that is bigger, better, grossly overdone, downright stupid or whatever I do not knot because I haven’t the faintest clue what the parameter is about. If ‘my’ values are different from default, I have changed them after consultation of OGF users or the Wiki. Mind you, the desdtop runs Windows7, the laptop Windows10. Both have WiFi.

But…

What would an JOSM parameter have for effect on a laptop where JOSM is not installed ? That’s where my issue originated.
